A larger entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 169.92ppkg, with a top price of 217ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 46kg making £100 from Ellis Lloyd & Co, Garthiaen, and £102/head for 47.5kg lambs from TG & EA Jones, Blaenwaen Ganol.

A much larger entry of lambs forward sold to a stronger trade than last week, which would be in line with other livestock market prices. Yet again best quality, well bred, well fleshed lambs were in most demand with plenty of pens over 200ppkg. Heavier weight lambs again sold to a keen trade and larger numbers of heavier lambs are encouraged every week. Also in good demand were the better bred lighter lambs with a number of these going as store lambs for further feeding. Slightly less demand for the hill bred lambs with a bigger price gap, this week, between the best and the worst lambs.

This week we saw an increased entry of 2628 cull ewes that sold to an even stronger trade than last week!! A fantastic trade from start to finish with 15 buyers present once again creating competitive bidding throughout and a terrific overall average of £55.93 being achieved. This was down £2.85 on the week but generally the ewes present this week were not as strong as last week. Top price of the day went to Tynybryn Farms that sold a strong pen of Texel ewes to £134. Grazing ewes would easily be up £10 on the week as well as the smaller Welsh ewes. The strongest Texel x and Suffolk x ewes were still a very good trade with any amount of these selling for over £95. More ewes needed each week to satisfy demand.

Texel x ewes to £134
